Another Bud’s Warehouse Review from First-Time Visitor

The reviews keep coming in. Thank you for the kind words. Your support is helping to change lives in Denver.

Dear “Bud” and staff:

Today was a first visit for me and my son. We weren’t looking for anything in particular, just mostly had heard about Bud’s and went on a “scouting mission” to see what they have as I have some home improvement projects coming up.

We were greeted on our way to the entrance.  Greeted again inside the doors and asked if there was anything they could help us find once in the door. We wandered towards the sticks of lumber where a man was sorting out a HUGE pile of it. Immediately as we approached, he said hello and removed his earbud (pet peeve of mine when folks can’t stop listening to their ipod when others are talking to them.)  I asked a couple of questions and he told us that he was just volunteering at the time, and that he could help us find what we needed then, or if we came back later in the day it would he would have it sorted and easier to find what we needed.  When I asked about pricing, he very politely advised us who we could ask and where to find them. He was very friendly and helpful.  (Just our 2 cents worth, but if this guy is looking for paid employment, hire him!  He was friendly without being overfriendly…if that makes sense, and happy to be working.)

We found some great things to use for kids projects! (wood burning is big at my house right now and all those unfinished wood cabinet drawer fronts will be perfect to do wood burning–add some hooks or pegs—and viola!  perfect coat/belt/dog leash rack—could be great wood plaques to make for dad’s birthday or Father’s Day next year.)

There was a set of VERY high end cabinets with beautiful dovetail joints and finish. Take along your imagination and you will find a Huge amount a materials to work with. Use your imagination and there are so many great things!

My only comment to make it a little easier for shoppers is I had a difficult time finding pricing, but perhaps I wasn’t looking far enough.  I did see some big ticket items priced, but not items like the drawer fronts, tile pieces, trim board, etc.  I am always a little shy about finding someone to ask a price about items, so will tend to not ask and not purchase then.

Thank you for the work you do to help save the planet in recycling so many great items and assisting those is in transition. I’m sure the road can be bumpy, but want to say thank you for the work you do!  Live I’ve always heard, “most people don’t want a hand-out, just a hand-up to help them get back on track.”

I have also recommended your  store to several others.

Regards.

Bud’s Warehouse Review: A Letter of Thanks

Though we shoot for 110% every time, we don’t always get it perfect for our customers. Running a job training program for individuals rebuilding lives from addiction, homelessness and prison can sometimes get a bit messy. But long-time customers–and we have a bunch of them– understand that to get the best results, they need to get in the hunt for the best stuff, follow our Twitter and Facebook feeds, and visit often.

But when we get it right, we get it right…

Dear Bud-

We visited Buds Warehouse today for the first time.  We were totally impressed from the time we stepped foot onto the property.  We walked past the garage where a very pleasant and enthusiastic young man was working on donated vehicles.  We commented on a particularly clean car and he couldn’t wait to show us the engine and tell us about the history of the car.  We then went on to the outside of the business yard where we were met by friendly staff.  We were asked by Rachel (a very pleasant and friendly, enthusiastic woman) what we were looking for and she told us exactly where to find the product.  Billy (an extremely knowledgeable and friendly young man – I was surprised later to find out that he had only been there for 6 weeks) helped us with the purchase of four cabinets, loaded them onto a cart and brought them to the front while we continued to shop around.

We were totally impressed with the inventory Buds Warehouse has – far exceeding [your competition]!  Your inventory is gigantic!  We then went outside to look around the yard and found some tile that we wished to purchase.  Bob Klinger (a very friendly man with a great sense of humor) figured up the price and had someone add it to our items to be purchased.  Rachel checked us out and Billy and Clarence (an extremely friendly and helpful young man, very excited and enthusiastic) loaded our purchases onto our truck and wished us God’s Blessings.

WOW! We WILL be back and we WILL pass the word onto others!  Thank you for such a wonderful experience and blessing!  Not only did you brighten our day, but we hope we were able to brighten others day by our visit to Buds.

God Bless each of the staff!
